The Hemiptera, commonly known as bugs, are a major group of insects characterised by the possession of a sucking beak. The earliest hemipterans, the Archescytinidae, are known from the early Permian to the Triassic; members of this group had a long, thin and coiled ovipositor held underneath the abdomen that may have been used to insert eggs into plants (Grimaldi & Engel 2005). Members of more derived groups are known from the Late Permian, indicating that the major lineages of the Sternorrhyncha, Auchenorrhyncha and Heteropteroidea had diverged by that point (Shcherbakov & Popov 2002).

Earlier authors divided the Hemiptera between the suborders Heteroptera, with forewings often divided between a leathery corium and distal membrane, and Homoptera, with undivided wings. The 'Homoptera' are now recognised as paraphyletic, and are instead divided between the Sternorrhyncha, Auchenorrhyncha and Coleorrhyncha. The Protopsyllidiidae are an extinct family of plant-sucking bugs known from the late Permian to the mid-Cretaceous; they are related to the Sternorrhyncha by their possession of a strongly opisthognathous rostrum and wings lacking a vannal fold, but they differed in retaining three-segmented tarsi and ten-segmented antennae (Grimaldi & Engel 2005).

Synapomorphies (from Grimaldi & Engel 2005): Maxillary and labial palps lost; mouthparts developed into suctorial beak, with two pairs of mandibular and maxillary stylets lying in long grooved labium.
